this depends on the grade. There are different strengths of red, but typically you are right. red is usually for more permanent apps and typically takes a lot of force to remove. For the little screws on the knives, blue would be ideal.dsmegst wrote:Use the blue! The red one is next to impossible to break loose.
That is a terrible bummer, man! I'm always afraid with these tiny, fine threads..they are SO dang easy to crossthread. Plus, I'm not convinced the hardware is that great to begin with (the screws, that is). But that's a different thread.MIL-DOT wrote:Well, I just grabbed several knives and went to the kitchen table and dove right in. First thing I noticed was that the screws in the PM2 already had blue loc-tite on them, so I goobered 'em up again, and re-installed them. Then I did the Stretch, which DIDN'T have any loc-tite, so i did that one up,too.
Then I went into the native5 and it also had already been treated with blue loc-tite. But then, I somehow seem to have either stripped one of the screws or the inner thread when re-installing .
I was going to do the the Manix2, Sage and Dfly, as well, but decided to just leave them alone. I may go back into my two Delicas, since I tote them pretty often.
And yeah, I'm using blue loc-tite as well, thanks again to all for the replies.
Well, until I owned Spyderco's, I never used clips, and often considered just removing them on knives I carried regularly. But some of my previous views have changed recently, and now I really dig the clips, and use them consistently.Slash wrote:Your knife. How much do you care about not loosing any screws on the clip.
